Popeye Museum and Store, Chester, Illinois – Weirdness Wednesdays September 2, 2020

This post was inspired by Pat’s godandi.blog/2020/08/31/6-u-s-cities-with-bizarre-nicknames/, specifically the reference to Popeye Museum in Chester, Illinois. I didn’t know there was a Popeye Museum. On the island of Malta, there’s a Popeye Village.

It seems like a great Weirdness Wednesdays choice. On the link below, you can join the Popeye Fan Club or order online from the store.
